Pino’s Solution To The VA Disaster


Is it just me or is there a simple common sense solution to the Veteran’s Affair disaster?

Consider the 2015 budget:

The President’s 2015 Budget includes $163.9 billion for VA in 2015.

Then use the VA’s number for vets:  Call it 22 million.

Last, the average cost of insurance:

As of February 24, 2014, the average premium for an individual health plan selected through eHealth without a subsidy was $274 per month…

So, do the  math.

$274 a month is $3,288.  Across 22  million vets you get $75,000,000,000.

Double the price of the plan and you STILL are $14 billion to the good.
